Welcome to Houston!
The community of Houston is nestled in the beautiful Bulkley Valley amongst some of BCs finest outdoor recreational opportunities. Strategically located halfway between the hub cities of Prince George and Terrace, Houston is home to the outdoor enthusiast. With a population of 3200 people, there is always room on the riverbank, lake or the many walking and hiking trails in the area.
The history of Houston stretches back to the turn of the Century with the expansion of the railroad through to the West Coast. Originally a farming community with the rich soils often found in valley bottoms, Houston has grown to become an industrial centre that exemplifies cohabitation with the farming community.
Houston is a quiet and peaceful community where the pace is slower, the people are friendly and the visitors are made to feel welcome. We hope you can visit our community and enjoy what it has to offer.
We invite you to come back soon!
